Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater thinks the Carolina Panthers will win Super Bowl 50. However, if he were a betting man, he'd take the Denver Broncos to cover the 5.5-point spread.

Bridgewater's final score prediction: Panthers 28, Broncos 24.

Bridgewater has made significant strides toward making his own appearance in a Super Bowl one day. After guiding the Vikings to a 7-9 season as a rookie (without All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson), he took the team to new heights as a second-year starter. Minnesota won the 2015 NFC North title with an 11-5 record, but they lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the first round of the playoffs.

Still only 23 years old, Bridgewater has plenty of time to develop and prepare his team for a deeper playoff run in the future.
